St.germain Early Origins



The surname St.germain was first found in Normandy (French: Normandie), the former Duchy of Normandy, where this distinguished family held a family seat in the seigneuries of St-Germain-de- Montgomery in Calvados, where there are traces of an early castle, and St-Germain-des-Vaux in Manche, and St-Germain-la-Campagne in the Eure, and St-Germain-Langot in Calvados. The Lords of this area were Roger, Henri, Jean, Mathew, Osbert, Ralph, Richard, Simon, and William, all of whom gave allegiance to William Crispin VII. Many of these nobles accompanied Duke William in his invasion of England and were granted lands in Suffolk. The parish of St. Germans in Cornwall is another eponymous location. "This place derived its name from St. Germanus, Bishop of Auxerre, who is supposed to have resided on the spot during a visit which he made to Cornwall, in the fifth century." [1]CITATION[CLOSE]
Lewis, Samuel, A Topographical Dictionary of England. Institute of Historical Research, 1848, Print.
